    Team dysfunction - is it me?

    You can see, hear and feel that things are not going well within the elected council body but what can you do about it? As an individual councillor it can be unclear how to best address dysfunction within the elected council, especially when the dysfunction is having a strong personal impact.

    Being a part of a dysfunctional team feels uncomfortable and erodes motivation and trust. And most importantly it stops the group from achieving their collective goals. In the case of an elected council, this is serving their community effectively.

    Webinar take-aways

    In this webinar, we zoom into the individual level to learn how you can manage yourself in the difficulty of group dysfunction.
    You will take away the skills you need to manage your own mind and know the steps to take to best move towards cohesive group function including:
    • Identifying where dysfunction can show up 
    • Internal cues and external clues to identify dysfunction early
    • Signs and symptoms of dysfunction
    • What action to take to manage yourself mentally, emotionally and practically
    • What to do if you suspect you are the cause of, or contributing to, the dysfunction
